A famous travel vlogger known as "The Food Ranger" said to ILNA that there is lots of negative advertising about Iran in the world, but tourists after traveling to Iran realize that all this advertising was wrong.
Speaking to ILNA’s correspondent, Trevor James who is recently traveled to Iran to produce films about Iranian food history said in an expulsive interview that “I want to portray the culture of the Iranian people so that people around the world know how hospitable the Iranians are.”
“I would like to travel to Iran again, of course this time with a different perspective.”
Trevor James, also known as "The Food Ranger" on YouTube, is a Canadian-born food and travel vlogger and YouTube personality. He is famous for his street food tours on YouTube, which have been viewed over 410 million times. James started filming his food and travel videos in March 2013 and his channel has since grown to have over 3.2 million subscribers.
Since then, he has filmed food and travel videos in Malaysia, India, Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, and Mexico.
James, who traveled to the cities of Gorgan, Mashhad and Chabahar, continued that although my trip may only be for acquaintance with Iranian cuisine, it was also fascinating to see Iran's cultural and religious attractions.
“The problem with street food in Iran is that all the foods offered have nothing to do with local and traditional dishes.”
The Food Ranger said “In some cases, the quality of foods is poor. However, street foods have a large capacity to attract tourists.” Adding that although there are many varied Iranian dishes but the restaurants in which to try these foods were very limited.
He added that a long and difficult visa process has been one of my concerns about traveling to Iran and this is a big question for all tourists that why this process is time-consuming.
“The Iranian government must put a great deal of effort into facilitating and enhancing foreign tourist arrivals.”
“I am ready to show my passport with Iran's seal to everyone and the media is dividing the people of the world,” Trevor James added.
At the end, the Food Ranger said “I am happy and now can recommend all my friends and followers to travel to Iran.”
